The Power of the Eucharist

Benedict XVI and Eucharist

It [the Eucharist] has the force to drive out not only death but also our weakness. In fact, Christ dwelling in us mitigates the law of the flesh that rages in our members, stimulates piety toward God, mortifies temptations, not imputing to us the sins into which we have fallen, but rather curing us as sick persons.

(From On the Gospel of John by St. Cyril of  Alexandria)
